Brilliant! I'm sure there's a thread on this already, but that quote deserves its own topic

House prices: How low can they go? Telegraph

One who thinks so is Jonathan Davis, chartered financial planner with Armstrong Davis and spokesman for the cult website www.housepricecrash.co.uk, where those who stayed out of the property boom go to gloat. A few months ago, commentators on the housing market were lining up to pour scorn on his dire predictions. Kirstie Allsopp even called his website "sick". Now, Davis admits he has been wrong about the housing market but only in as much as it is in a worse state than he had thought.

"In April 2007 I said I thought prices would fall by 25 per cent from peak to trough," he says. "By October 2007, I increased that to 35 per cent. Now, I think prices will fall by 40 to 50 per cent, and the market will not reach a bottom until 2011."


Fame, fame fatal fame. FP is the new Kirstie Allsopp. ;)

Well, I'd better get gloating.

*throws some more twenties on the fire*

*adjusts monocle*

*sips brandy*

*assumes Llyod Grossman accent*


I say, dear Tabitha, my lack of a house has appreciated in value by One Thousand Seven Hundred and Fifty pounds in the last month, you simply must invite that scavvy property-owning Smythe Family over so that I may throw caviar on the floor and watch them snort it off like the buy-to-let pigs that they are. Bwahahaha!

Cult website?

I'd like to point out at this point that I was here when it was genuinely hip, when doom-mongers sat around effortlessly cool with frugal f-you nonchalance while consumer drones splashed their plastic on tat. I was here well before it was full of mainstreamers who've just learned about the HPC from the BBC news. When I came here it was a cobbled-together thing with a freebie bravenet forum.

And I'd like to add that I am a 'homeowner', ie: mortgage holder/payer/slave who wanted to be as sensible as possible when escaping the gang-ravaged streets of SE London and moving house.

I don't think cult is the right word.
